Expressing his own cultural identity, guitarist Thibaut Garcia combines Rodrigo’s archetypally Spanish Concierto de Aranjuez with a declaration of l’esprit français: Alexandre Tansman’s neoclassical Musique de cour, inspired by the court of Louis XIV. Garcia’s heritage is Spanish, but he is French, born in the city of Toulouse, where this album was recorded with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and the young British conductor Ben Glassberg. It is completed by four solo pieces by Regino Sáinz de la Maza, the guitarist who gave the premiere of the Concierto de Aranjuez in 1940.


Is 26-year-old Franco-Spanish guitarist Thibaut Garcia’s account of Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez one of the finest ever recorded? Quite possibly. Rarely has such a combination of virtuosity, intelligence, character and flair been brought to bear on this most popular of all concertos...  William Yeoman
